[UPDATE: This event has now concluded.]
After a series of productive bilateral meetings and a working dinner yesterday, the Nuclear Security Summit continues today with the two major Plenary Sessions. The first day saw significant progress, including work towards consensus on Iran and Ukraine’s landmark decision to get rid of all of its stockpile of highly enriched uranium -- a goal for the United States going back 10 years -- by the time of the next Nuclear Security Summit in 2012.
At 1:00PM EDT today we want to give you a chance to engage on these issues of nuclear security, non-proliferation, and the threat of nuclear terrorism. Join Ben Rhodes, Deputy National Security Advisor for Strategic Communication, in a live video discussion directly from the Summit itself.
